I picked this book up and skimmed the back, then opened the cover and checked out the cast list. I bought the book immediately after purely because Crowley’s description read, “An angel who didn’t so much fall as saunter vaguely downward.” The rest of the book held up to all my preconceptions of what a collaboration between Gaiman and Pratchett should be – alternately hilarious and quirky at turns, the story is wonderful. It’s the apocalypse, but it’s funny. Laugh out loud funny, actually. This is one of my all-time favorite reads. Definitely a keeper – the type of book you wind up buying over and over again after loaning one copy out and never getting it back or dropping yours in the bath a few too many times.— Caitlyn, Raleigh
